Valerie Singleton helps celebrate Yeatman Hospital’s radiology renovation

Seated are Valerie Singleton (OBE) and hospital matron Anne Hiscock.  Behind them are locality manager Sara Froud, consultant radiologist Dr Nick Bathurst, radiographer Wendy Jackson, RSM Suzanne Holloway, Mark Stewart of Carestream, consultant radiologist Dr Jeremy Hacking, radiographer Sue Hughes and assistant Teresa Clark.

As part of recent works to modernise its radiology department, Yeatman Hospital in Sherborne, Dorset, has installed a Carestream DRX-Ascend x-ray room.

Radio and television presenter Valerie Singleton was invited to help celebrate the opening of the new facilities, which will be used by between 150 and 200 patients each week.

“We can confidently say we are now giving patients the highest standards of care, using the latest x-ray technology,” said radiology manager Suzanne Holloway.  “Since installing the new room in April, patients have benefited from reduced scanning and waiting times, as well as reduced doses from the equipment, while staff can make more accurate diagnoses thanks to improved image quality.”
